EP 37: 3 Ways to Improve Your Relationship with Your Blood Sugar (Without the "Just Think Positive" Mindset)
If you're feeling stuck or a bit burnt out in your diabetes management, this episode is for you. At some point or another, all of us go through ruts in our management, and it's important to normalize it! Instead of trying to to tackle everything at once, I've found it most sustainable to build strong foundations that support us in the ever occurring micro-moments that create big impact in our diabetes management. Today we're talking about neurolinguistic programming and how you can use the practice of anchoring to build positive pairings that will completely change the relationship and mindset you hold around the blood sugar numbers. The more we implement practices like this, the less we associate our self worth with our blood sugars and the more we see them as an independent part of our lives.

EP 28: Inclusion and Representation in the Diabetes Community with Taylor Turner
We know that there are two disparities in the diabetes community.  Disparity #1: There is a lack of representation and empathy for the type two community. Disparity #2: People of color do not receive the same level of care in either communities. So how does social media perpetuate these disparities? How can we become more inclusive and bridge the gap? Inside this weeks episode, I sit down with Taylor Danielle, Podcaster and Founder of Healing in Hindsight a network to help millennials with diabetes thrive. We discuss Taylor's experience as a Type 2 woman of color navigating the diabetes community and advocating for equal care and representation.

EP 26: Not Meeting your Weight Loss Goals with T1D? This Ones for You.
Weight loss isn't a bad goal to have while living with diabetes. Unsustainable weight loss is. There is a massive difference between weight loss lead by restriction, and weight loss lead by fueling your body and enjoying the process. Inside today's episode, I sit down with my co-coach and friend, Jessica Hrdlicka. Jessica is a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator who helps people living with diabetes lose weight and manage blood sugars all while eating the foods that they love.  Inside our conversation, we talk all about an empowered approach to your weight goals and taking the journey without restriction. SHOW NOTES ⏰ (1:04): Introducing our guest, my-co-coach: Jessica Hrdlicka ⏰ (2:01): I'm sure that everybody kind of knows you from my Instagram page, um and just kind of being aware of Keeping it 100 But do you mind taking some time to introduce yourself and just kind of sharing a little bit more about yeah, you and what you do? ⏰ (3:31): Can we take a quick second, just to explain kind of what you do for, first our clients inside of Keeping It 100, but then also what you do for your own clients inside of your own business? ⏰ (5:54): Can you share maybe the things that your clients typically walk in believing and kind of what shift you help them create? ⏰ (8:50): What is the first thing that you kind of uncover with these clients who come in with those preconceived kind of notions like you mentioned? ⏰ (13:14): Can we talk about the science behind it, on both ends of like weight loss and insulin resistance, why isn't cutting carbs or cutting calories the immediate solution there? ⏰ (17:02): When we're talking about just that initial mindset portion of working on the relationship with food and relationship with the number, before anybody even wants to get into their weight loss journey. What are kind of some tips or advice that you can give them when they're working with that upfront? ⏰ (19:22): When it comes to kind of that weight loss perspective, how do you take that 'adding in' approach into that goal? Like, how do you support your clients in that? ⏰ (22:05): Can you talk about that a little bit, of why having less calories doesn't always equate to weight loss? ⏰ (23:55): I wish more people took your approach of like, no, like, we need a set amount of calories a day, we need to fuel our bodies. And that's how it works. ⏰ (25:26): If someone came to you in a plateau, what would be the first few questions that you would ask them to consider? ⏰ (30:32): How would you say that like your approach to blood sugar management, insulin resistance, weight loss, etc. meets that sustainability piece? Like, what do you do differently that makes it sustainable for everybody so that they're not stuck in that yo-yo diet? ⏰ (32:33): When would you say ‘you’ve done a lot, it’s time to kind of set that goal aside and focus on other things’? ⏰ (35:37): What would you say is the importance of having like a mentor, or a coach, or someone like you, right next to them guiding them along the way? ⏰ (37:18): Inside of your own personal coaching, do you do private coaching, group coaching?

EP 23: An Empowered Approach to Type One Pregnancy with Piper Backholm, FTNP, DE, LCCE
Welcome back to Keeping it 100 Radio! Today we're talking all things type one pregnancy. There can be a lot of fear-based tactics to motivate type ones into better blood sugar control for pregnancy, but Piper believes in a different approach.  Inside today's episode, we learn from Piper Backholm all about why traditional approaches to lowering your A1C before pregnancy don't work, what to focus on when going on a TTC journey and all of the ins and outs of what to expect during the nine months of pregnancy.  RESOURCES- Find Piper on Instagram - Register for Piper's Pregnancy Course SHOW NOTES⏰ (1:03): This week’s guest⏰ (2:43): Do you mind introducing yourself?⏰ (4:26): What got you on to that approach of integrating more whole foods into your own lifestyle?⏰ (6:48): Do you mind speaking more on your diagnosis and how it was to go from growing up with this; living with T1D for 20+ years, to now having your own child and going through that experience of having your health now impacting somebody else as well?⏰ (10:12): Were these questions that you went to your doctors with?⏰ (12:43): Were there other people that you brought into your journey at that point?⏰ (14:40): So for somebody listening who might not know the difference between their regular health care provider, endocrinologist and somebody who works in the holistic realm, how did they approach those appointments differently?⏰ (18:42): Can you speak more to the difference that you felt in your journey from living that standard American diet to focusing on micronutrients and the holistic perspective?⏰ (23:22): Were there any fears going into pregnancy or misconceptions that you didn't know more about? Like those common myths that we're taught about diabetes and pregnancy?⏰ (28:35): So for your clients that come to you, do you notice that a lot of these maybe first time moms generally have a lot of fear? Or like what are the common roadblocks that stop people from wanting to or make them scared of pregnancy or having a family?⏰ (33:32): If you were talking to someone who may be looking to get pregnant in the next 3-5 years, and they’re looking at all the kind of misconceptions that are given online or the recommendations or fears that people hav, what would you tell them being on the other side of it? What would you want them to hear instead?⏰ (39:15): How would you describe that experience to anybody who’s kind of trying to prepare or get more real insight into the journey of pregnancy; from preparation (lowering A1C, etc) to the hills and valleys of insulin resistance and insulin sensitivity during pregnancy?⏰ (44:24): So looking a little bit into the pregnancy journey, again, you know, SparkNotes version, how can you prepare somebody for the nine months? I know that there's different sensitivity and resistance levels, just kind of how somebody might prepare and looking to maybe understand the trends that might be coming their way?⏰ (51:31): Let's talk about how you support type one woman in the pregnancy journey and how people can find more about you and what you do, because obviously, there's just so much more than can fit into an hour long podcast episode.

EP 19: FOR THE NEWLY DIAGNOSED T1D: All the things I wish I knew
Diabetes is like learning a language you never wanted to learn. Not only are there new "rules", a new way of taking care of yourself and a new way of making decisions, but there are A LOT of new terms to learn. Heck, when I was diagnosed I didn't even know what a carb was, none the less a "bolus".  Inside this weeks episode I'm breaking down nine diabetes-specific definitions I wish I learned sooner. Learning these not only would have made my endocrinologists appointments a lot less overwhelming, but it would have allowed me to have more powerful interactions with other members in the diabetes community.  Here's what's inside the episode:  - Nine definitions it took three years to learn in my own management - Four things I WISH my endocrinologist told me from the very beginning - How to use these for your own journey and make them your own Thank you so much to Skin Grip for sponsoring this podcast!

EP 16 - Your Diabetes & Exercise Questions Answered
With knowledge is power, with knowledge is more options and with knowledge is flexibility. I believe that with type one diabetes, we shouldn't have to, we shouldn't have to tie ourselves down to a structure with exercise or lifestyle simply because it works for our blood sugar. We should have the options in front of us to make it work for us and our bodies, our goals and our preferences. Inside this episode, I'm diving deep into blood sugar and exercise far beyond the oversimplification of "bring a juice box" so you can finally have interruption-free workouts. I'm going to give you the three biggest things I learned in my personal training certification that I've applied to my diabetes and exercise journey.

EP 15 - An Open Conversation on Playing Both Roles.. A Health Care Provider with T1D Taking a Functional Approach to Diabetes
Of all of the endocrinologists that you've met with, how many of them have actually had type one diabetes like you? Throughout my 8 years of living with T1D, I can't name a single physician that has truly been able to identify with my diagnosis. Well, that's where people like Paige come in. Meet Paige Proctor, a Certified Endocrinology PA and Health/Fitness Coach who has type 1 diabetes herself. She helps her patients and clients understand the root causes of their blood sugar trends so that they can live their lives without diabetes holding them back. In today's conversation, Paige and I talk about what it's like playing the role of a patient and provider - the good, the bad and the ugly. We also discuss the flaws in traditional western medicine and why she's decided to take a functional approach to diabetes care and how she is training her patients to do the same.  Here's what we discuss in today's episode: The experience of playing the role of patient and provider in the health care setting How a background in nutrition and exercise has changed the experience for her patients What is a functional approach to diabetes and how it can help patients self-sustain success RESOURCES: - Apply for the Skin Grip Diabetes Scholarship - Hangout with Paige on Instagram SHOW NOTES ⏰ (0:25): Skin Grip Scholarship - Apply or contribute at https://bold.org/scholarships/skin-grip-diabetes-scholarship/ ⏰ (2:57): Introducing today’s guest ⏰ (3:45): Do you mind talking a little bit about your journey?

EP 10: Complications isn't a dirty word.. Normalizing the discussion around mental health & fears around type one diabetes
We've all had the conversations in our endocrinologists office - retinopathy, neuropathy, glaucoma, nephropathy - there's quite a list of potential risks that come with a diagnosis of type one diabetes. The one thing in common? They're scary to think about, they're frequently used as a scare tactic from our physicians, and having them doesn't make you a bad diabetic. Inside this episode, I'm chatting with a former Keeping it 100 client on her 11 years living with diabetes and how the fear of complications actually held her back from caring for her blood sugars. We get real on the emotional impact this fear creates, the stress it cultivates and how it plays a role in how we prioritize our diabetes management.  Here's what we discuss inside today's episode: - Kayleigh's diagnosis at 15 years old and how the initial advice she received impacted how she managed her blood sugars for 10 years. - How she came to the decision that seeking support was best for her. - How the fear of complications stopped her from taking care of her blood sugars. - How social media made it's impact on her mindset around diabetes complications. - The mindset shift that helped her go from thinking "complications are inevitable" to "my journey can be different".

EP 8: BEHIND THE SCENES with the Keeping it 100 Team: Why diabetes doesn't actually thrive off of routine
We see it all the time. New diets and trends - low carb, plant based, high carb - low fat, #75Hard workout programs, you name it. All of which were not designed to support the woman's body. The linear, checklist approach to diabetes management is actually more damaging for women who want to gain predictability in their blood sugars and work with their body. Inside this episode, I sit down with my co-coaches Jessica Hrdlicka (RD/CDE) and Valeria Garcia (Women's Wellness Coach) and discuss why our diabetes management doesn't actually thrive off of routine and how our approach has created a groundbreaking space for our clients. INSIDE THE EPISODE: The problem with linear solutions to type one diabetes Why low carb, exercising everyday and losing weight is an oversimplified approach to blood sugar management Why routine doesn't mean more predictability in your blood sugars Who creates the diets, matters Why insulin resistance is a sign from our bodies Our BRAND NEW RESOURCE The Insulin Sensitivity Optimization Method!

EP 5 - Your Automode Matters (and no, we're not talking about on your pump).
Welcome back to Keeping it 100 Radio! Wow, 2021. What a year. We have seen so much growth in the resources we have available to the diabetes community. One advancement I'm most impressed with? The automode feature on pumps like the T-Slim and Medtronic (and hey, even the Omnipod but that isn't FDA approved yet). While I'm not on the automode myself, I've had many clients who are. But to their disappointment, it's an advancement that's overhyped in the health care system. Not because it doesn't work, but because they haven't taken the proper steps to set their foundations in place first.  Inside this episode, we're going to talk about the number one flaw I see in the automode feature, how you can make the technology work for you and how you can work with it all to finally bring predictability to your blood sugars and end the frustration around dosing decisions. SHOW NOTES ⏰ (2:05): What is Keeping it 100? ⏰ (3:27): New technology and it's flaws ⏰ (7:35): The technology is only as strong as our decision making… ⏰ (10:42): Assessing baselines should be our top priority ⏰ (13:14): Decision making process ⏰ (17:02) What emotions are driving our decisions? ⏰ (20:08): Wrap-up Resources for this episode:  Check out Skin Grip at skingrip.com and use the code “LISSIE” at check out!

EP 3 - The Muted Conversation We're Bringing to Light.. Diabulimia & Its Impact.
This episode comes with a trigger warning, but it's an important conversation for us to have. When I was first diagnosed with type one, I was lucky enough to be 19 when I already had a pre-established relationship with food (not to say that diabetes didn't distort that relationship). Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Diabulimia is a very real and dangerous eating disorder that is not fully recognized or discussed by our endocrinologists. Inside this episode, we're talking with guest Natalie Swanson about her experience with diabulimia, the impact it's had on her life and how to get support if you relate to the signs. Here’s what’s inside today’s episode: What is diabulimia and why it's not talked about enough. The implications of chronic restrictive diets, weight loss and avoiding insulin doses. Our personal stories with disordered eating after a type one diabetes diagnosis. How to recognize the signs in yourself or a loved one. How exercise can sneak it's way into diet culture. How to tackle food guilt and how we approach food with diabetes. SHOW NOTES ⏰ (0:00): Intro ⏰ (0:28): Brought to you by Skin Grip ⏰ (1:08): Intro Natalie ⏰ (1:59): Do you mind sharing a bit about yourself and just introducing yourself? ⏰ (1:09): Why isn’t diabulimia talked about? ⏰ (6:36): How did you recognize that there was this disordered relationship around around food? ⏰ (10:23): Type 1 vs Type 2 stigma ⏰ (15:07): There's this idea of going around the diabetes community that once you start insulin, or if you take a certain amount of insulin, you gain weight. I’d love to hear your insight on that. ⏰ (20:44): Do you mind sharing some like signs or thought processes or behaviors that may help us to recognize if we might fall into that category? Or if our loved ones may be falling into that category? ⏰ (24:35): So let's just say we're a type three. So we're somebody who is a loved one of a diabetic or you know, friend, family member partner, whatever it is, how can we differentiate the difference between preference and disordered eating? Like, where is the line? How can people understand? What are the appropriate questions to ask? ⏰ (27:59): If somebody recognizes that their patient or their loved one is having these emotions around food or are approaching food in this way, or they’re noticing the signs in their management - how can they support their loved one or their patient? Like what are some things that they can do to help them recover? ⏰ (32:01): At what point did you realize that you needed support? Like who did you turn to? What did you do to kind of start that process? ⏰ (38:36): Is there a time where fitness and exercise is damaging? Or is that always healthy? ⏰ (41:41): Do you have any tips that you can share for tackling food guilt, especially with type one diabetes, where we do have to look at food a different way, and there's blood sugars involved? And what can you share if anybody needs some, some tips? ⏰ (46:31): What do you do to provide support? ⏰ (48:35): Do you have a website? What is your Instagram? Where can people find you? ⏰ (49:42): Wrap-up Episode Resources: 1. Learn more about Keeping it 100 HERE2. Find Natalie HERE Thank you to Skin Grip for sponsoring this episode!

EP 2 - What I THOUGHT Would Help Lower My A1C vs What Actually Did
EP 2 - What I THOUGHT Would Help Lower My A1C vs What Actually Did Let’s face it, there is a lottt of misinformation, advice and poor strategy that floats its way through the internet. While intentions may be good - its effects are not. So it’s up to us to filter what is beneficial for our bodies, mind and spirit - and what is not so beneficial. In this episode, I take you through the past seven years since my diagnosis and what I THOUGHT would help me control my blood sugars and lower my A1C and what ACTUALLY helped, without leaving me feeling restricted. Here’s what’s inside today’s episode: Clearing up the confusion between what diets and strategies are more likely to leave us feeling restricted and resentful. #1: The first thing I was told - restrict carbs. Why this didn’t serve me and how looking at the bigger picture of pairing my foods strategically helped more. #2: Why the detoxes, cleanses and resets are just short term solutions to blood sugar management and what you can look to instead. #3: The “pre-bolusing strategy” just isn’t it. #4: We’re in an age where relying on your endo as your only means of support will only hold you back in your management. #5: There will be times when exercise won’t actually benefit you, despite what we’re told. What to look to instead. #6: Why we’re told to avoid variability with this diagnosis and why it doesn’t work.
